.c. i question is for bob schieffer. you said all elections come down to the economy. you can make the argument president obama centered his candidacy on social issues. what about today with the fiscal environment the united states is facing? what we have better discussions during these debates that centered more on the economy? >> i think in the end, this one did come down to the economy. the president may be basing his second term on social issues. if you take his inauguration speech as a guidepost to where he wants to go from here. but i did not hear him to talk a lot about the campaign -- during the campaign. the economy began to get better. i did not see him spending a lot of time talking about gay rights during the election. i did not hear him talk very much about gun control. i think it was mentioned once in one of the debates. i think they thought they had to get -- what they concentrated on, in some ways, this was not so much an election about issues as it was about identifying their voters and getting their voters to the polls and recognizing the demographics in this coun
, who is tipping down after serving throughout president obama's first administration. >>> this afternoon, during 5:00 eastern hour of "the situation room," before hillary clinton is stepping down as secretary of state, her exit interview takes place here on cnn. see it first today at 5:00 eastern. >>> mississippi river, they are still trying to clean up that oil spill. two barges filled with oil struck a bridge near vicksburg early sunday morning. the tank holding 80,000 gallons of oil and one of the barges started leaking after the collision. the gulf strike team is helping out with the cleanup but the job could get harder because the dangerous weather leaded through the mississippi valley. want to bring in chad meyers looking at this line of thunderstorms moving into the deep south. that's going to happen, what, this afternoon? >> yes, it is. right now these storms are moving at 75 miles per hour. so the significance here is you may not have time to get out of the way unless you already have a plan. and tornado watch means you should have a plan going on right now.
nomination since president obama nominated him more than three weeks ago hagan tried to damp down much of the bipartisan criticism. chuck schumer, democrat of new york, key democrats shelved their skepticism and say they support him. it's not decided whether all 55 democrats are in his camp. hagel has to win over, assuming he has 55 he has to win over just five of his fellow republicans. only one republican senator thad cochran of mississippi said he is in favor. let's go to capitol hill with chief congressional correspondent dana bash. usually when a president nominates a senator, it's a no brainer, he gets the support of all his former colleagues, we saw that with john kerry, despite being a liberal democrat almost every republican voted for him to be secretary of state. dana, why has this been a heavy lift for president obama even though chuck haguele is a former senator? >> reporter: >> it really is fascinating, you're exactly right, jake, generally there is a deference given to the club or former members of the club. that is the opposite. you can see chuck hagel trying to get comf

. secretary of transportation ray lahood announcing he's stepping down. he's the only republican in the obama cabinet and at least the sixth member to exit as president obama starts the second term. not clear where lahood is headed or what he'll do next. he does say he'll stay until the senate confirms his replacement. >>> this story fascinates me. for years this -- look at that map. nothing on it. this is all we knew of north korea's roads and cities. not much. just a blank canvas. but then the google chairman eric schmidt visited the country. now we have this. with the help of citizen mapmakers on the ground, one of the most isolated countries in the world has been mapped out. now, eric schmidt, after he took this visit, says that this timing is just a coincidence. >>> well, a close call in australia, major flooding across the northeast is churning up sea foam. you got to see these pictures. it is blowing on shore. take a look at this. not snow, sea foam. in some areas that was nearly ten feet high. you see folks playing in it here. the foam is a result of algae blooms, believe it or not, c

"his advance responses to the policy questions shed light on what hagel will say at the hearing, when he will face appointed examination from senators who are opposed to or have raised concerns about his nominatio
. president obama has funded a program. i was fortunate enough to apply it and won a lot of awards and the state, so i have been turned down for other programs and they finally accepted me in this program. it has been a tremendous blessing for me. when it comes to the work, i worked nonstop. there are too many cases, too much stuff going on. you just cannot do it in 40 hours. >> final dawn porter comment , -- final comment around the issue of racial prejudice, dawn what's most prisoners, most people arrested our young minority people. we're creating a permanent underclass. if you do not have been zealous representation or people like travis and brandy who come from these neighborhoods, who see their clients as people and not statistics or numbers, who care about their lives, we're going to keep funneling and losing a lot of talent. >> thank you both for being here, travis williams, public defender in georgia, and dawn porter, a lawyer turned filmmaker, director of the hbo documentary, "gideon's army closed with a premiered at this year's sundance film festival, and i hope coming to

of president obama's gun package, but you say it all comes down to people's behavior. what do you mean? >> effective gun control has many facets to it. assault weapons ban is an element, significant symbolism. but the reality is you want to control behavior. the behavior of people. and that's what we did in the '90s here in new york. that's what i did in los angeles for seven years. crime is caused by people. you focus on their behavior and one of the behavioral changes is insuring that everybody that wants to buy a firearm has to basically submit to an i.d. check. that's form of behavior control. a lot of laws, a lot of tools are necessary, but effectively what you're doing is trying to control behavior. >> gretchen: you say that supersedes legislation. i just want to show some crime stats from new york when you were in charge here in the '90s. so murders fell 70%, car theft down 61. robbery down 55%. burglary down 53%. what did you do significantly about behavior? >> we had a very assertive police force, a very large police force. did the same thing in los angeles with a small police
that the university of chicago wants to buy that house, tear it down, and put up a parking lot. a parking lot -- a parking lot perhaps -- how ironic is this -- for the barack obama presidential library. >>brian: i blame the city of chicago. they should have made this a landmark. >>gretchen: they claim it is not a landmark, although they have delayed this process now a couple of times. the ronald reagan childhood home has survived now since december. they got a stay, so to speak, in january. it's still not exactly clear what is going to happen here, although the bulldozers are sitting nearby ready to go. what do you think about this story? should that happen or should it become a landmark? >>brian: or should the president say, listen, if my library, if i have to steam roll ronald reagan's house to build a library, i shouldn't have a library. maybe the president should decide. >>steve: it's not even a done deal yet. he hasn't picked a selection site, and the university of chicago is simply lobbying for it. e-mail us at friends at fox news. >>gretchen: how is this for a good use of your money? t
himself for the obama administration. i know he is going to be going into the administration for some type of position. he is not a bad man. he did come down here to promote the south coast rail system, which we have been waiting for for 40 years. all liberal issues he is just a little bit too lenient. we have so much waste in government. i would like to see someone conservative in the governorship to weed out all this fraud. we go to work hard every day and we shake our heads when we come home every night. host: let's take a listen to one of the republican governors in the country who has become a leading voice in gop issues. this is chris christie in his state of the state address. he starts by talking about hurricanes in the budde goes from there. >> there is plenty of evidence that new jersey has not let's stop our turnaround. and i'm unemployment is coming down -- unemployment is coming down. 2011 was our best private sector job growth in 20 years. personal income set a record high in new jersey for the seventh quarter in a row. income tax receipts -- sales of new homes are up. consum

free decision guide. and learn more about the kinds of plans that will be here for you now -- and down the road. i have a lifetime of experience. so i know how important that is. >>> as president obama throw his support behind an overhaul of u.s. immigration laws, one man has a lot to say on that particular subject. he's bill gates. a couple of years ago, gates testified before congress, saying hiring immigrants at microsoft is the key to its growth and he sat down with our very own christine romans, who joins me live. christine, what is he saying now? >> you know, i told him that looks like the only consensus you get in washington now is about immigration reform. and what would he like to see? does he think it is possible. he said quite frankly this is the best chance for real reform in years. listen, brooke. >> our immigration system makes it very hard for those people to come in. so if somebody is being offered a job here, for over $100,000, there is other jobs created around that job, you don't want to discourage a company from having to put that -- >> do we discourage them? >> abs

degrees yesterday. now watch this cold air spread really from the dakotas all the way again down to the southeast. look at these temperature changes, down about 32 degrees from yesterday morning and it's not going to stop there. >> all right, rainindra peterso thank you very much. >>> president obama admitting it's been difficult to drum up support for gun control on the other side of the aisle. >> my suspicion is we're seeing more bipartisan discussion on the immigration issue than on the gun issue. i'm actually optimistic that we can get both done. both will end up generating some opposition and some strong opposition. there will be passions on both sides. >> the president's remarks came after the senate judiciary committee held a contentious hearing on gun violence that began with a statement from gabrielle giffords, the former arizona congresswoman who was nearly killed by an assassin's bullet. she told the committee that gun violence is simply claiming too many american lives. >> you must act. be bold. be courageous. americans are counting on you. >> giffords' husband, mark
like they have a chance to strike down a whole method of appointment for president. ten years ago, 20 years ago, this wasn't even controversial. now, the conservative majority could deal a very, very serious blow to president obama's entire tenure in office. it is a -- so that's -- that's what the stakes are. >> it is as big of a deal as it seems. >> it sure does. i know it sounds like legal good-b goobly gook. >> the frigid weather is hitting especially hard for some victims of superstorm sandy. some are finding their terrible weather now is not helping matters at all. susan candiotti is there. susan, i see behind you tents in this weather, people have resorted to living pretty much outside. >> reporter: actually, no, these tents are not set up for people to live here. but they are acting because of a woman who is helping people out as a place where they can gather, where they can get a hot meal and where they can talk to each other about, frankly, getting through this cold weather and more importantly getting through living through the aftermath of hurricane sandy. so let me show yo
, unfortunately, under president obama's presidency. does it concern you, chief, that federal prosecutions per month in 2011 compared to those in 2010, the number of filings went down 7.9% and were down 28.8% from 2006 in federal court. does that concern you? >> i can tell you that in the baltimore police department -- >> i'm asking if those numbers concern you. >> no, because you are not including local prosecutions. i cannot stand here and tell you of a single case in baltimore county where a gun was involved that was not prosecuted. >> are we trying to pass a state or federal law today? it is a federal law we are trying to enforce. and with regard to the crimes of carrying a court -- a firearm during the violence or drug trafficking offense, those prosecutions declined. i would say that, first, we need to make sure we are doing our job. i would also note that although crime is a very important matter, we should never lose our emphasis on bringing down crime. the murder rate in america today is half what it was in 1993. we have made progress on that. and we can continue to drive those number
